This is indeed something I faced myself.

Sometime in the past (when I only had a P&S camera), I went to a studio and got some family photos taken. I paid them and purchased some photos from them. However, they said they would keep the rest of the photos and in future if I want to get them, I need to pay them again. They wouldn't provide me any digital copies unless I pay them separately (which is again quite high price). They also claimed that they are the owners of my photos!!

I really had no choice but after that incident I bought a DSLR and won't go to studio again.

This is one of the reasons why professional photographers are dwindling in numbers (and then they complain no body now appreciates professional photography).
